- Published Version
The institute for Food safety (RIKILT), part of Wageningen Univeristy and Research centre (Wageningen UR) has developed a method to verify the organic nature of eggs. The fingerprint of the natural caretonoids (carotenes and xanthophyllis) in eggs are used to discriminate between production systems. After extraction and processing the results are subsequently compared by statistical methods.
